Abstract Background Adhesion G-protein coupled receptor F5 (ADGRF5) was recently identified as an essential regulator of pulmonary surfactant homeostasis in alveolar type II cells. We previously showed that in addition to abnormal surfactant accumulation, mice to help understand its biological role in the lung, and especially in immune regulation. Methods Histological features of lungs were evaluated by Alcian blue and Massons trichrome staining. Quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) and western blot analyses were performed to analyze the differential expression of genes/proteins related to NCGC00244536 airway inflammation in lungs between wildtype and mice. AcidCbase status was assessed by performing blood gas assessments NCGC00244536 and urine pH measurements. Inflammatory cell counting was performed using Giemsa-stained bronchoalveolar lavage cells. Serum IgE concentrations were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The expression of in primary lung endothelial cells (ECs) was determined by qPCR and/or western blotting. Finally, the effect of administrating RS504393 to 2-week-old mice on gene expression in the lungs was analyzed by qPCR. Results mice exhibited several features of chronic airway inflammation (mucous cell metaplasia, mucus hyperproduction, subepithelial fibrosis, respiratory acidosis, high serum IgE, mast cell accumulation, and neutrophilia) in parallel with elevated expression of genes involved in mucous cell metaplasia (was upregulated in embryonic or neonatal lungs as well as in lung ECs of mice at 1?week of age. RS504393 treatment suppressed the upregulation of in lungs. Conclusions Targeted disruption of ADGRF5 results in the development of airway inflammation, which is likely mediated by the type 2 immune response and possibly CCL2-mediated inflammation. ADGRF5 also has a potential role in the regulation of genes encoding CCL2 in lung ECs, thereby maintaining immune homeostasis.

ADGRF5 is usually expressed predominantly in the lung and to a lesser extent in many other tissues such as the heart, kidney, and adipose tissue [1, 2, 7, 8]. In the lung, ADGRF5 expression is usually readily detectable in alveolar type II (AT2) epithelial cells and the vascular endothelium [8C11]. It has been established that ADGRF5 is critical for maintaining pulmonary surfactant homeostasis, as targeted disruption of mouse results in the massive accumulation of surfactant lipids and proteins in the alveoli [8C11]. It has also been shown that ADGRF5 controls the surfactant pool size by suppressing the secretion and promoting the uptake of surfactant in AT2 cells via the Gq/11 signaling pathway . Moreover, the accumulation of pulmonary surfactant is also induced by epithelial-cell-specific and AT2-cell-specific deletion of mRNA in the lung is usually upregulated at 18?days post-coitum (dpc) and peaks at 1C3?weeks of age [9, 10]. In mice, excessive pulmonary surfactant can be detected at 1?week of age, and the accumulation of alveolar macrophages occurs at 2C3?weeks of age [10, 11]. In addition, the fact that ADGRF5 is not expressed in alveolar macrophages [8, Mouse monoclonal to CD11b.4AM216 reacts with CD11b, a member of the integrin a chain family with 165 kDa MW. which is expressed on NK cells, monocytes, granulocytes and subsets of T and B cells. It associates with CD18 to form CD11b/CD18 complex.The cellular function of CD11b is on neutrophil and monocyte interactions with stimulated endothelium; Phagocytosis of iC3b or IgG coated particles as a receptor; Chemotaxis and apoptosis 10] suggests that the accumulation of alveolar macrophages is not a direct result of deletion, but rather a secondary effect based on the increased surfactant NCGC00244536 pool size. We previously showed that alveolar macrophages from mice produce and release reactive oxygen species, matrix metalloproteases (MMPs), and proinflammatory cytokines/chemokines, which might cause alveolar tissue destruction and inflammation . The major chemokines secreted from these alveolar macrophages are C-C motif chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2, also known as monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP-1)), and CCL3, which likely enhance the recruitment of monocytes and macrophages to the lung. Interestingly, an increase in CCL2 levels was detected in whole lungs of mice at 18.5 dpc , at which time the accumulation of neither pulmonary surfactant nor alveolar macrophages had occurred [9, 10]. We therefore hypothesized that ADGRF5 might also have a role in maintaining immune homeostasis in the lung. The NCGC00244536 lung is usually constantly exposed to inhaled pathogens, allergens, and environmental pollutants, and rapidly eliminates these particles with the help of the immune system. Immune responses in the lung must be tightly regulated to prevent inflammation and tissue damage. Inappropriate or excessive immune responses cause the development of chronic.
